MSPCA Offering Workshops on Animal Advocacy Training
Feb 27, 2015 01:26PM
Several bills concerning companion animals, wildlife, farm animals and animals in entertainment are currently pending before the Massachusetts legislature. Concerned animal advocates can help to influence the passing of laws to protect animals, and work to prevent the passage of bills that would harm them, by contacting their legislators. To assist these efforts, the MSPCA is hosting trainings across the state this month and in April and a lobby day at the State House in Boston on May 13.
The trainings include information about the timing of the legislative process, public hearings and ways to testify, identifying and contacting elected officials, ways to effectively influence legislators, methods for spreading the word and working at local levels to help animals, and the detail and status of current pending legislation.
For more information on training dates and locations, call 617-541-5008 or visit MSPCA.org/calendar.
